I'm looking for a couple of replacement latch plates for our 2006 Pollensa. The originals are made of white plastic; I can't find any of the same type or size so I'm posting in the hope that someone can point me in the right direction. 
I know I could change to metal latch plates, but the ones I've looked at are all different sizes and ideally I'd like to just replace the damaged ones with a straight swap.

Here's a picture of one of the latch plates, with a ruler showing the centres of the attachment screw slots are 3/4" apart.

(In case you're wondering, I've glued this one together to photograph it).

The plastic ones are always breaking. Yes the metal ones come in different  sizes but you'll never need to replace again. This listing off ebay shows different sizes if you scroll down to where it shows 'similar items'.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hafele-Striking-Plate-33mm-x-12mm-x-9mm-Screw-Fixing-Nickel-Plated-Finish-/253409105355?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

You'll notice they call them striking plates rather than latch plates, gives a much larger result if you search striking plate.

Same happened to me last week, AS don't have any, I got a grey plastic one from AS, slightly bigger but it does the job,  have also orders a couple of sets of Plastic Roller Catches for Cupboard doors & Locker door white Caravan Motorhome from Kenmore Caravan & Motorhome spares, item number 181153721737 on their Ebay shop. Go on Ebay and find them there.

Many thanks. I've taken your advice and ordered a couple of metal ones from an eBay seller.
